Reservation Pickup Location

Moonlight3We pickup Reservation Rides on the 16th Street Mall at the corner of Lawrence in front of the Tabor Center Door, (look for Colorado Athletic Club sign above door) which is Ride Stop #1 on the pickup location map (see the home page) . Please Note, this is not the Cheesecake Factory or Overland Outfitters corner. .

Special pickups and drop-offs are available for an additional fee. Direct transports are also available.

Custom routes can be arranged.

We do add a $13 reservation fee and a 20% Employee Service Fee per carriage to the total ride cost. Driver gratuities are customarily 20% cash at the ride.

For safety reasons, all passengers must independently be able to enter and exit the carriage. Weight restrictions apply. Carriages are not handicap accessible.

Regular Carriages seat up to 4 adults and 2 small children up to (50 lbs) and our Super Visa Carriage will seats up to 6 ADVERAGE SIZE adults and two lap sitting children (under 50 lbs)(may have limited availability). Multiple are available for larger groups.

We accept pre-paid reservations only and recommend booking well in advance for the best selection of dates and times.

Pricing includes 2 adults and two small lap sitting children under 50 lbs. for additional passengers a $15 additional charge applies.

NOTE: We do not not use large three seat carriages due their HEAVY WEIGHT when loaded with 9-12 passengers.  We must consider our horses well being as a priority in our operation. Extra large three seater Carriages are extremely hard on horses. We suggest for large groups using multiple carriages.

All rides are routed, not timed.

Passengers must arrive at the pickup location 10-15 minutes prior to the reservation time to allow for flexibility in carriage arrival and to check in with hostess on busier nights. Arriving 10-15 min early does not mean the carriage will be sitting there waiting it means that we need that much time flexibility to keep our reservations flowing. Please do not call us if we are not 15 min. early.

During the Holiday Season please arrive 15 min. prior to your reservation time. Please check in with the hostess on duty on busier nights. Please allow plenty of time for your ride both before and after the scheduled time. Unavoidable delays may occur. Late arrivals will create the need to shorten the route you have chosen so that we can stay on schedule and accommodate our other bookings.

We are sorry, but AFTER A RESERVATION IS PROCESSED IT IS NOT REFUNDABLE. WITH A 48 HOUR NOTICE WE WILL ISSUE A RIDE VOUCHER TO USE AT A LATER DATE WITHIN 90 DAYS. Weather Cancellations, by our company must be rescheduled. NO REFUNDS. NOTIFICATIONS FROM OUR COMPANY WILL BE BY E-MAIL AND TEXT MESSAGE ONLY.

You must call our office to schedule. If you have been issued a Gift Certificate the expiration date will be imprinted on the Certificate. We do not offer extensions beyond the expiration date.
